Ugly Sweater - IAS #29

Hello my friends and Happy Sunday! It's a little gray and gloomy here today, but hopefully the sun will come out soon and warm things up. Yesterday was a beautiful day and I was able to do just a little bit of work out there before I had to come inside and rest. That really irks me because I used to love to work out in my gardens and would spend hours out pulling weeds and digging in the dirt. That is one thing that age has placed limits on. 😧

So, what makes me happy now is time spent in my craft room. I did have a little bit of time during the last couple weeks to spend some time doing some creating. This card was made for the latest challenge for International Art & Soul. Our DT Team Member Jeanette picked the theme for our challenge which is to "Add Humor."

Materials Used:
Image and Sentiment- Art Impressions
Cardstock - Stampin Up Cucumber Crush; Xpress It Blending Card
Designer Paper - Stampin Up - Be of Good Cheer
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Flower from Hobby Lobby; ribbon from my stash
Copic Markers - B0000, B02; E00, E11, E23, E25, E51; G14, G16, G19; R24, R35, R46; Y18, Y35; YR04; W12

Now it' up to you. I hope you'll pop on over to the challenge blog and add your creation. I look forward to seeing some Humor on your projects. You could be a winner or one of the Top 3.
